Top tips for pitching
• Note how everything is packed together when you open the transport sack. This will help you when you come to repack it.
• When selecting your campsite, the ideal place would be an area as even and clean of rocks, branches and other sharp objects as possible.
• Avoid placing the tent directly under trees.
• ALWAYS have a trial run, putting up and taking down your new tent in order to know it before you use it for the first time AND to ensure nothing is missing.
• When erecting your tent, do not secure it too tightly, otherwise it will not be able to adapt to varying wind and weather conditions.
• If strong winds are expected, replace the normal tent pegs with storm pegs. For stony or hard ground stronger U-form pegs are recommended.
• Finally, check all guylines and pegging loops for equal tension. This will help reduce possible tension-damage and to ensure stable pitching.
NOTE: Do NOT use guylines to pull out the tent pegs, instead invest in a proper tent peg remover.
